"I`ve been Colouring"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pass by my little corner of Blogland.  I love to have you here, if you leave a comment I can link back to see what you get up to. 
Big welcome to Asrid my latest follower, thank you for joining me.  Astrid is off to Australia to visit her Grandchildren.  
We are very lucky to have ours just 6 miles along the road.  They were here yesterday afternoon, Thomas worked with John in the garden.  They were splitting up some rather big plants.  The bits they took out went down the lane where they have been plated in hope that they grow.  Robert helped some of the time, mostly he was in the kitchen with me making these Loom Band Bracelets. The recent craze for the kids.   Now he has mastered the basics he is progressing onto more difficult ones.  Thomas made one then announced "you know something Granny that`s a real girl thing"  "Think I will pass on it"  The fridge got a shock as has the bread, butter and jam ...... boys!!!
I am in awe of all the wonderful coloring that is shown on some Blogs.  I had a go at colouring over the weekend.  I really enjoyed it, although I have a lot to learn I am happy with what I have done.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous Patricia. Looks like porcelain! Your garden and the area is great for kids, and they obviously love it. Our great niece and nephew have a really great time when they come here too. They will be here again next month so we are looking forward to it. Hugs Christine xx

  4. Beautiful colouring on a gorgeous image Patricia, love the soft colour tones..
    Love having my Grandchildren too... although they are grown up now.

  5. Beautiful card Patricia. Your colouring looks perfect to me. Definitely not my forte, even with all the new pens and pencils that are out there. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx

  6. Hi Patricia, I think your colouring is absolutely beautiful, lovely soft colours and a beautiful image. I was interested to read about these loom bracelets in the press the other day..we used to make and wear something very similar when I was a teen..just shows what goes around, comes around, lol, hugs Carole Z X

  7. Morning Patricia,
    Beautiful image and the colouring looks perfect to me. Not very good myself but then I don;'t do it very often so perhaps should practice more.

  8. Hi Patricia mine are coming up this weekend so its a big spend at the supermarket! Fabulous card and your colouring is gorgeous. I find colouring really relaxing and could do it for hours. You are probably like that when making your beautiful roses which I find completely un-relaxing as I am so rubbish at it! Susan xx

  9. Such a pretty and delicate little girl and beautifully coloured I might add!! xx

  10. Good morning Patricia

    How lovely to have little help mates about the place. I bet they love coming to visit you both.

    I think your colouring is lovely .. .. and your finished card beautiful.

    I love to sit and have a good old colouring session .. . it usually happens when I go and visit my Mum on a Friday. I sit colouring and she will play on her DS! Not bad for an 83 year old LOL!!

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  11. Your Coloring and card are just beautiful, i had a go at coloring yesterday with a set of Noir pens i had won, and what a disaster ,i think a 4 yr old could have done better , i really do not know how you and others can get the images so beautifully colored.
